A sunset crowd shot of the avatars gathered for the memorial

On June 10, 2020, long time resident Benjamin Bigdipper passed away suddenly, much to the shock of family and friends, both in RL and Second Life.
Below are the logs of the memorial service held in The Wastelands for Benjamin Bigdipper on June 13, edited lightly for formatting.   – Ed.

[2020/06/13 13:05] NeoBokrug Elytis: Okey Dokey. I think everyone’s trickled in, just as Ben would have wanted it.

[2020/06/13 13:05] Giuseppe Spicoli: guessing gomi doesn’t come around SL anymore

[2020/06/13 13:05] Kyo (kyo.voxel): Gomi is still around
[2020/06/13 13:05] Wasteland Drifter (wastelanddrifter): She was here for Promageddon
[2020/06/13 13:05] Aposiopesis Fullstop: She’s around fairly often, really.
[2020/06/13 13:05] NeoBokrug Elytis: We’re here today to remember the person behind the avatar Benjamin Bigdipper. By the turnout here, it’s very apparent he had lots of friends all across SL.
[2020/06/13 13:05] Grady Echegaray: Gomi does come inworld
[2020/06/13 13:05] NeoBokrug Elytis: Gomi is working. :(
[2020/06/13 13:05] Grady Echegaray: yes
[2020/06/13 13:05] Giuseppe Spicoli: :(
[2020/06/13 13:06] Grady Echegaray: she has new job
[2020/06/13 13:06] ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): D:

[2020/06/13 13:06] Kyo (kyo.voxel): heya Grady :)
[2020/06/13 13:06] Grady Echegaray: Hi Kyo :)
[2020/06/13 13:06] Grady Echegaray: hahaha
[2020/06/13 13:06] Grady Echegaray: knew there had to be a giant peen in the pics somewhere :p
[2020/06/13 13:06] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): Hah

[2020/06/13 13:07] ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): xD

[2020/06/13 13:07] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): only one?
[2020/06/13 13:07] Diamanda Gustafson: welp
[2020/06/13 13:07] ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): :O
[2020/06/13 13:07] NeoBokrug Elytis: I am not good at these sort of things, but I figure that we can all share stories of Ben, what he meant to us all as a friend, and share the good and bad times.
[2020/06/13 13:07] Baby Chameleon (animated): Click me to toggle the animation on/off
[2020/06/13 13:07] NeoBokrug Elytis: For those who have to leave early, if you want to take some time to say something shoot me an IM now.
[2020/06/13 13:09] NeoBokrug Elytis: And if anyone else wants to share anything, just shoot me an IM, but let me know that you’re in no rush.
[2020/06/13 13:09] NeoBokrug Elytis: After our stories and sharing stuff, we’ll be showing The Human Centipede at Burnt Oak, as per Bens request.
[2020/06/13 13:09] ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa) shrieks!
[2020/06/13 13:09] Giuseppe Spicoli: 2 more weeks is now
[2020/06/13 13:09] Aposiopesis Fullstop: I went through chat logs and did a tally.
[2020/06/13 13:10] IKI Ä (iki.akiri): :(
[2020/06/13 13:10] Aposiopesis Fullstop: I believe it was a total of 104 MORE WEEKS.
[2020/06/13 13:10] Kyo (kyo.voxel): wow
[2020/06/13 13:10] Kyo (kyo.voxel): so basically 2 more years
[2020/06/13 13:10] NeoBokrug Elytis: 2 years
[2020/06/13 13:10] Giuseppe Spicoli: seems approp
[2020/06/13 13:10] NeoBokrug Elytis: Haha :)
[2020/06/13 13:10] Wasteland Drifter (wastelanddrifter): How did it get pushed back that far?
[2020/06/13 13:10] Kyo (kyo.voxel): it became a running gag
[2020/06/13 13:10] Vikki Placebo: collective fear.
[2020/06/13 13:10] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): SCIENCE!
[2020/06/13 13:10] Kyo (kyo.voxel): and fear
[2020/06/13 13:11] Bardy Dreamscape (lordbard.dreamscape): HI
[2020/06/13 13:11] ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Hi Brady
[2020/06/13 13:11] ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Bardy*
[2020/06/13 13:11] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Every time he asked, he’d be told it was pushed back two more weeks just for asking.
[2020/06/13 13:11] ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): haha
[2020/06/13 13:11] Kyo (kyo.voxel): lol
[2020/06/13 13:11] NeoBokrug Elytis: Giuseppe is going to have a few words, hopefully on the stage Ben made. :)
[2020/06/13 13:12] NeoBokrug Elytis: Hop up. :)
[2020/06/13 13:12] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): its basicly the bow of movies
[2020/06/13 13:12] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Haha, good old BOW.
[2020/06/13 13:12] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): Let’s hope Giu remembers how to jump.
[2020/06/13 13:12] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): Oh he fell instead.
[2020/06/13 13:12] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): you keep asking. and once you got it your not sure you want it
[2020/06/13 13:12] Giuseppe Spicoli: I fell in a bunker
[2020/06/13 13:12] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): haaaa
[2020/06/13 13:12] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Negative-jump.
[2020/06/13 13:12] Vikki Placebo: hehe
[2020/06/13 13:12] Raze Repine: I don’t remember either
[2020/06/13 13:12] Kyo (kyo.voxel): anti-jump
[2020/06/13 13:12] Raze Repine: o_O

[2020/06/13 13:13] Giuseppe Spicoli: wow there are a lot of us here
[2020/06/13 13:13] Grady Echegaray: 28
[2020/06/13 13:13] Vikki Placebo: and more here in spirit
[2020/06/13 13:13] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas) nods
[2020/06/13 13:13] ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): :D
[2020/06/13 13:13] Raze Repine: sorry
[2020/06/13 13:13] Giuseppe Spicoli: Thanks for being here, everyone.
[2020/06/13 13:13] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): if this was a more toxic communety and les of a radioactive communety i would suggest alt+f4 for jumping. but im glad i will not do so
[2020/06/13 13:13] Raze Repine: hey Cloudy
[2020/06/13 13:13] clσudy (black.cloud): \o
[2020/06/13 13:13] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Haha!
[2020/06/13 13:14] Rax Stooge: heheheh
[2020/06/13 13:14] ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Hey Raze, good to see you again :)
[2020/06/13 13:14] Giuseppe Spicoli: What can I say about Ben, except that he would probably give me a lot of shit for making a big thing out of this.
[2020/06/13 13:14] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Haha
[2020/06/13 13:14] Raze Repine: Mutsy O_o … my cyrilic is bad … just relized now
[2020/06/13 13:14] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): Seems like a Ben thing.
[2020/06/13 13:15] ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): xD
[2020/06/13 13:15] Giuseppe Spicoli: I have been away from SL for a long time now, and coming back here this week to look through my inventory and find artifacts of my experiences with Ben (and others) has been very strange. Mixed feelings. Nostalgia for sure, among others.
[2020/06/13 13:16] Giuseppe Spicoli: I spent a little over 10 years here, and when I thought back on it I realized that perhaps most of my time here was spent hanging out with Ben. We used to make things together, actually.
[2020/06/13 13:16] Giuseppe Spicoli: Many of those things never saw the light of day outside of our experiments, but that’s fine.
[2020/06/13 13:16] Diamanda Gustafson: probably for a good reason
[2020/06/13 13:17] Aposiopesis Fullstop: The world may not have been prepared.
[2020/06/13 13:17] Gwenever (plotski): Because you are both perfectionists
[2020/06/13 13:17] Giuseppe Spicoli: And although technically my SL partner was and is Cutea, it does seem like practically speaking, it was Ben.
[2020/06/13 13:17] NeoBokrug Elytis: :)
[2020/06/13 13:17] Diamanda Gustafson: <3
[2020/06/13 13:18] ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Aww
[2020/06/13 13:18] Plurabelle Laszlo: hey there. that s not a nice reason to come for a visit after such a long time. Ben was my first neighbor here at the wastelands.
[2020/06/13 13:18] Vikki Placebo: hey Plurabelle :)
[2020/06/13 13:18] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hey there, Plurabelle.
[2020/06/13 13:18] Kyo (kyo.voxel): hiya Plurabelle
[2020/06/13 13:18] Plurabelle Laszlo waves
[2020/06/13 13:18] Giuseppe Spicoli: As I was trying to help figure out old former SLers that we should contact…
[2020/06/13 13:18] Giuseppe Spicoli: I realized that Ben knew people in all sorts of communities here.
[2020/06/13 13:19] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): hey xrr
[2020/06/13 13:19] xrrawva: hey
[2020/06/13 13:19] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): heya
[2020/06/13 13:19] Giuseppe Spicoli: I’m sure there are others that none of us were in touch with and who should be here as well, and for that I can only apologize and say I wish we could have done more.
[2020/06/13 13:19] Vikki Placebo: xrrawva :)
[2020/06/13 13:20] Giuseppe Spicoli: Pardon me for rambling … just another moment
[2020/06/13 13:20] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Take whatever time you need. :)
[2020/06/13 13:21] Giuseppe Spicoli: When I think of Ben, and when I remember these times, I hear his voice in my head. Which is strange because I never thought of SL as a place where I spoke on voice chat a lot… but I realize that I DID spend a lot of time on voice chat with him. I can hear his voice clearly in my head as though he were here right now. I can hear the tone, and again, imagine him giving me shit for this speech.
[2020/06/13 13:21] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): ey mak
[2020/06/13 13:21] Vikki Placebo: hey Mak :)
[2020/06/13 13:21] Vikki Placebo nods!
[2020/06/13 13:21] IKI Ä (iki.akiri): I will never forget Ben’s tone, ever
[2020/06/13 13:21] Sandling Honey: Yoo
[2020/06/13 13:21] Makaio Stygian: Hi there Vikki :)
[2020/06/13 13:21] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): heya
[2020/06/13 13:21] Aposiopesis Fullstop: “Mmmyes… but WHY are you doing this?”
[2020/06/13 13:21] Vikki Placebo: lol :D
[2020/06/13 13:22] Kyo (kyo.voxel): lol yeah
[2020/06/13 13:22] IKI Ä (iki.akiri): Whhattt ArrrEee we DoiinnG toDaaay Ikiiii?
[2020/06/13 13:22] Vikki Placebo tears up.
[2020/06/13 13:22] IKI Ä (iki.akiri): Legendary
[2020/06/13 13:22] Giuseppe Spicoli: I miss him already, and I will miss him always, as another part of my life to which I can never return.
[2020/06/13 13:22] clσudy (black.cloud): T.T
[2020/06/13 13:22] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): :(
[2020/06/13 13:22] Aposiopesis Fullstop: :(
[2020/06/13 13:22] ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa) sobs :(
[2020/06/13 13:23] Giuseppe Spicoli: This place will not be the same without him, but take heart… this place has never stayed the same regardless. Change is constant and an inevitable part of existence.
[2020/06/13 13:23] Raze Repine: :(
[2020/06/13 13:23] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): Hear hear
[2020/06/13 13:23] Grady Echegaray: so true :(
[2020/06/13 13:23] Seti Rabt (setirabit.rayna): yes
[2020/06/13 13:23] Giuseppe Spicoli: As long as we do remember him and our experiences with him, he does live through us.
[2020/06/13 13:23] ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa) nods
[2020/06/13 13:24] Giuseppe Spicoli: I thank you all again for being here, our extended family. I hope he knew how much he touched so many of our lives.
[2020/06/13 13:24] Giuseppe Spicoli: I could go on and on like this, but I’m going to hand the talking stick back to Neo.
[2020/06/13 13:25] Giuseppe Spicoli: OH… I forgot one thing
[2020/06/13 13:25] Giuseppe Spicoli: You may wonder what is up with the weird viking helmet I’m wearing today
[2020/06/13 13:25] Giuseppe Spicoli: It’s the first item that came up in my inventory when I searched for Ben
[2020/06/13 13:25] Wasteland Drifter (wastelanddrifter) wonders
[2020/06/13 13:25] Rax Stooge: I admit I was getting mad Loyal Order of the Waterbuffalo vibes from it.
[2020/06/13 13:25] Giuseppe Spicoli: It’s something he made, and so I’m wearing it because it is goofy and a bit inappropriate for this setting, much like Ben himself.
[2020/06/13 13:25] Kyo (kyo.voxel): same, Rax
[2020/06/13 13:25] Giuseppe Spicoli: If it had transfer permissions, I would share a copy with each of you to wear as well, but alas.
[2020/06/13 13:26] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): Ben would appreciate the inappropriateness.
[2020/06/13 13:26] Kyo (kyo.voxel): Nah, it should be the only one. Just like Ben was one-of-a-kind.
[2020/06/13 13:26] Giuseppe Spicoli: Hahah Tay has one too tho :)
[2020/06/13 13:26] Kyo (kyo.voxel): ah well there goes that out the window lol
[2020/06/13 13:26] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): Haha
[2020/06/13 13:26] Giuseppe Spicoli: Anyway if y’all have any interesting items from Ben, I encourage you to wear and share them today
[2020/06/13 13:26] Giuseppe Spicoli: Stepping down now…
[2020/06/13 13:26] NeoBokrug Elytis: Thank you Giuseppe.
[2020/06/13 13:26] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): Thanks Giu, that was lovely

[2020/06/13 13:29] Mayo von Schrott (myotis.draconia): All I can say about Ben is I never really got to know him or talk to him but one dancing crotch sock says more than a thousand words
[2020/06/13 13:29] DiscoMacabre: ty
[2020/06/13 13:29] Vikki Placebo: hehe

[2020/06/13 13:33] Raze Repine: and we always came across, for example on my wedding in the wastelands
[2020/06/13 13:33] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): I remember the wedding, ja :)
[2020/06/13 13:34] NeoBokrug Elytis: There’s a pic of the wedding in the slideshows. :)
[2020/06/13 13:34] Raze Repine: he gifted me much stuff in the beginning, so that I can build my lot apropriate to the wastes
[2020/06/13 13:34] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): Yess
[2020/06/13 13:34] Wasteland Drifter (wastelanddrifter): “how to be wasted”
[2020/06/13 13:34] Raze Repine: yes
[2020/06/13 13:34] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): o so many levels
[2020/06/13 13:34] Raze Repine: gosh … good, that I am not over voice
[2020/06/13 13:35] Aposiopesis Fullstop: <3
[2020/06/13 13:35] BlackWidow Sinister: Nods
[2020/06/13 13:35] Rax Stooge: :(
[2020/06/13 13:35] Raze Repine: I, like we all, will miss him … his jokes, his kind behavoiur and his funny madness
[2020/06/13 13:36] Raze Repine: I think I’ll give the staff back to Neo, before my keyboard swims away
[2020/06/13 13:36] Raze Repine: Ben allways in our hearts
[2020/06/13 13:36] Makaio Stygian: Thank you for sharing, Raze
[2020/06/13 13:36] Aposiopesis Fullstop: <3
[2020/06/13 13:36] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Thank you, Raze.
[2020/06/13 13:37] Rax Stooge: Thanks Raze.
[2020/06/13 13:37] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): Thanks Raze
[2020/06/13 13:37] NeoBokrug Elytis: Thanks Raze!
[2020/06/13 13:37] ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Thank you Raze
[2020/06/13 13:37] The Digger (sandusky.kayvon): Thank you Raze!
[2020/06/13 13:37] Lune (lunesta.matova): Thank you Raze. Glad you found your way home to WL.
[2020/06/13 13:37] Kyo (kyo.voxel): Thank you Raze
[2020/06/13 13:37] Grady Echegaray: Thank you Raze <3
[2020/06/13 13:37] Giuseppe Spicoli: Thank you Raze
[2020/06/13 13:37] Vikki Placebo: thanks, Raze <3
[2020/06/13 13:37] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): For sure, so good to see you again.
[2020/06/13 13:37] Ztar (ztar.magic): thanks…..♥
[2020/06/13 13:37] Raze Repine: thanks to you all
[2020/06/13 13:38] Grady Echegaray: Makaio hey! :))
[2020/06/13 13:38] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): Hey Anne!

[2020/06/13 13:38] NeoBokrug Elytis: I guess I’ll take my turn up here. I am not particularly good at these things.
[2020/06/13 13:38] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Heya, Aki.
[2020/06/13 13:38] Giuseppe Spicoli: I don’t think any of us are Neo
[2020/06/13 13:38] Grady Echegaray: Hi Aki :)
[2020/06/13 13:38] Anne Cloud: Hello All.
[2020/06/13 13:38] Makaio Stygian: Hello
[2020/06/13 13:38] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): Yeah I’m absolutely terrible at these too.
[2020/06/13 13:38] NeoBokrug Elytis: Before I start, for those of you still trickling in, if you would like to speak please let me know, and if you have to leave sooner than later, please let me know that as well.
[2020/06/13 13:38] Vikki Placebo: Hey Aki :)
[2020/06/13 13:39] NeoBokrug Elytis: I think is really says something that here, in thise niche of a virutual world, that so many people have show up. We all knew Ben differently on a personal level, but he’s impacted so many peoples lives.
[2020/06/13 13:40] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas) nods
[2020/06/13 13:41] NeoBokrug Elytis: I agree with Giu, that he’s probably be making a fuss about us all getting together to remember him. But I also think that he may be enjoying the opportunity to look down at us all and really appreciate this.
[2020/06/13 13:41] NeoBokrug Elytis: And pissing on us from the heavens.
[2020/06/13 13:41] Grady Echegaray: hahaha
[2020/06/13 13:41] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): Most likely lol.
[2020/06/13 13:41] Lune (lunesta.matova): ahaha
[2020/06/13 13:41] Giuseppe Spicoli: definitely pissing
[2020/06/13 13:41] NeoBokrug Elytis: ;)
[2020/06/13 13:41] Grady Echegaray: ya kinky
[2020/06/13 13:41] Grady Echegaray: :p
[2020/06/13 13:41] ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): xD
[2020/06/13 13:41] Ztar (ztar.magic) grins
[2020/06/13 13:41] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): its raining here .. so
[2020/06/13 13:42] ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): It was thundering by me, lots of piss came down
[2020/06/13 13:42] Rax Stooge: same here
[2020/06/13 13:42] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahaha
[2020/06/13 13:42] NeoBokrug Elytis: Ben was certainly unique, and for me personally I really enjoyed the time we spent together. He was forward and very exacting when he wanted to let you know something. For some people that’s too blunt, for me that’s just fine because it gets right to the point.
[2020/06/13 13:42] ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Great thing was, there were two rainbows after
[2020/06/13 13:43] Wasteland Drifter (wastelanddrifter): Double rainbow?
[2020/06/13 13:43] ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa) nods
[2020/06/13 13:43] NeoBokrug Elytis: He reminds me of why I joined SL, for the funny weird shit that SL was founded upon in my opinion. Without him here I would’ve never been as inspired as I am to work on zany side projects.
[2020/06/13 13:43] ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): That’s great to hear ^^
[2020/06/13 13:44] NeoBokrug Elytis: That sock though, as the estate owner made me a little anxious, but I knew deep down that it was just fine and pushing the rules to the limit. That’s what Ben liked to do.
[2020/06/13 13:44] NeoBokrug Elytis: Challenge you.
[2020/06/13 13:44] Raze Repine: right
[2020/06/13 13:45] ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa) chuckles
[2020/06/13 13:45] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): ;)
[2020/06/13 13:45] Vikki Placebo: heehee
[2020/06/13 13:45] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahaha, aye.
[2020/06/13 13:45] Wasteland Drifter (wastelanddrifter): What about the giant peepee?
[2020/06/13 13:46] NeoBokrug Elytis: I’ll always remember him. I also wasn’t an avid user of SL voice, but he was.
[2020/06/13 13:46] Giuseppe Spicoli: maybe not the giant peepee
[2020/06/13 13:46] NeoBokrug Elytis: So I too will remember his voice, the cadence of his speech, and the funny things he’s say.
[2020/06/13 13:47] NeoBokrug Elytis: I am glad to have been his friend.
[2020/06/13 13:47] Diamanda Gustafson: And the choice of words.
[2020/06/13 13:47] Grady Echegaray: Neo <3
[2020/06/13 13:47] Aposiopesis Fullstop: He is well represented in the Quotes File.
[2020/06/13 13:47] NeoBokrug Elytis: I am going to pass the mic to Grady. Again, if anyone would like to say something or share a memory, just let me know.
[2020/06/13 13:47] NeoBokrug Elytis: (oof chat lag)
[2020/06/13 13:47] Grady Echegaray: thanks Neo
[2020/06/13 13:47] Vikki Placebo: thanks, Neo <3

[2020/06/13 13:48] Grady Echegaray: Ben was my neighbor across the road for many years
[2020/06/13 13:48] Ztar (ztar.magic): thanks that was heartwarming alike the other speakers…
[2020/06/13 13:49] Grady Echegaray: one day I noticed two angry looking Garden Gnomes, one with an AK47 even
[2020/06/13 13:49] Grady Echegaray: and a big STOP sign
[2020/06/13 13:49] Grady Echegaray: glaring across the road at my patch
[2020/06/13 13:49] Grady Echegaray: I had no idea what needed to be stopped
[2020/06/13 13:50] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahaha
[2020/06/13 13:50] Grady Echegaray: but I knew these Gnomes needed an answer
[2020/06/13 13:50] Vikki Placebo: lol
[2020/06/13 13:50] Diamanda Gustafson: loooool
[2020/06/13 13:50] Grady Echegaray: the rest of the tale can be told in 3 pictures

[2020/06/13 13:52] Vikki Placebo: :D
[2020/06/13 13:53] Grady Echegaray: Ben was unforgettable…for more than a few reasons. I will always rmember him
[2020/06/13 13:53] Grady Echegaray: partic when I sit on one of his moldy sofas
[2020/06/13 13:53] Raze Repine: exactly

[2020/06/13 13:53] Grady Echegaray: and whenever we watch a show at Burnt Oak and look at his Drive in sign
[2020/06/13 13:53] Raze Repine: had always bis bean bag in my hut

[2020/06/13 13:56] Grady Echegaray: <3<3
[2020/06/13 13:56] Raze Repine: cya


[2020/06/13 13:56] IKI Ä (iki.akiri): ey b0ss guys, I don’t know any of you and I am a friend of Ben’s from outside the wastelands, there was a small group of us who I suppose I’m speaking on behalf of here
[2020/06/13 13:57] Anne Cloud: Welcome, Iki
[2020/06/13 13:57] Aposiopesis Fullstop: It’s nice to meet you, Iki! Even if under such circumstances.
[2020/06/13 13:57] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): Thanks for being here, Iki!
[2020/06/13 13:57] ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Ah nice to have you here Iki :)
[2020/06/13 13:57] Raze Repine: you’re very welcome
[2020/06/13 13:57] IKI Ä (iki.akiri): When we heard about Ben it really didn’t seem like it was real, we all thought it was one of his pranks, or he’d be on later to call us all bitches and then laugh about it later, seemed like a Ben thing to do; terribly morbid
[2020/06/13 13:58] IKI Ä (iki.akiri): I met Ben well over 10 years ago, and our little group of friends had some of the greatest times I’ve ever had to date on this platform. At some points we were constantly together building and joking and just wasting our time.
[2020/06/13 14:00] IKI Ä (iki.akiri): But the one thing that Ben really bought to us all was his rampant positivity, while he was super blunt; he always had a weird way of cheering everyone up. Or at least the ability to throw something well out of left field that we forgot why we were upset in the first place
[2020/06/13 14:01] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hah, truth.
[2020/06/13 14:01] Rax Stooge: INdeed
[2020/06/13 14:01] IKI Ä (iki.akiri): He was a constant reminder to never take life too seriously, especially not here; where you can do or make whatever; like this fine bottle of Rohypnol he gave to me a long time ago.
[2020/06/13 14:01] Giuseppe Spicoli: I found one of those in my inventory today too
[2020/06/13 14:01] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): Yes haha.
[2020/06/13 14:01] Kyo (kyo.voxel): hahaha oh god
[2020/06/13 14:01] Vikki Placebo as well.
[2020/06/13 14:02] IKI Ä (iki.akiri): The world needs more people like Ben, and his rampant bong hits and crazy laughter will be very, very missed.
[2020/06/13 14:02] IKI Ä (iki.akiri): That’s all :(
[2020/06/13 14:02] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahaha, he slipped me one as well, it looks like.
[2020/06/13 14:02] Kyo (kyo.voxel): ha slipped
[2020/06/13 14:02] Rax Stooge: hehehee
[2020/06/13 14:02] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Thank you, Iki.
[2020/06/13 14:02] Vikki Placebo: thanks, Iki! <3
[2020/06/13 14:02] Lune (lunesta.matova): Thank you
[2020/06/13 14:02] NeoBokrug Elytis: Thank you for coming Iki.
[2020/06/13 14:02] Kyo (kyo.voxel): thanks Iki!
[2020/06/13 14:02] IKI Ä (iki.akiri): I believe that’s his voice when you equip it btw
[2020/06/13 14:02] Rax Stooge: Thanks Iki!
[2020/06/13 14:02] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): Thank you Iki, that was really sweet.
[2020/06/13 14:02] Raze Repine: thx a lot
[2020/06/13 14:02] Anne Cloud: Thanks Iki
[2020/06/13 14:02] Plurabelle Laszlo: thank you, Iki
[2020/06/13 14:02] The Digger (sandusky.kayvon): Thank you, Iki!
[2020/06/13 14:02] Ztar (ztar.magic): thanks Iki
[2020/06/13 14:03] NeoBokrug Elytis: Up next is Bazooka Joe
[2020/06/13 14:03] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): Ben did have that kind of aura about him whenever I saw him around.
[2020/06/13 14:03] Giuseppe Spicoli: Thank you Iki!!
[2020/06/13 14:03] ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Thnak you Iki :)
[2020/06/13 14:03] Seti Rabt (setirabit.rayna): Thanks for sharing k

[2020/06/13 14:03] Kyo (kyo.voxel): and she lags out of frame.
[2020/06/13 14:04] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): hey Vit


[2020/06/13 14:04] Bazooka Joe (echopraxia): Hi everyone. This might be a little disjointed because I’m having a hard time formulating thoughts right now. I think Ben would be proud of me and laugh at me at the same time for getting up here and doing this because I’ve always been so shy. This also might get a little deep, this is the closest thing I’ll have to funeral for him, but I’ll try to reel it in as much as I can.
[2020/06/13 14:05] NeoBokrug Elytis: Take your time. :)
[2020/06/13 14:06] Bazooka Joe (echopraxia): I met Ben at a kink sim here in SL. He was just sitting on a couch there and started talking to me. I was always so surprised by how open he was about his “alternative interests.” I was always so careful about keeping the two separate but he never cared who knew and what they thought about it and I loved that about him.
[2020/06/13 14:07] Bazooka Joe (echopraxia): We hit it off faster than I’ve ever hit it off with anybody. We started talking every day for hours and hours. I remember when I found out he was German and used voice. I made him get on voice for me and say “squirrel” because I had just watched a bunch of those videos where Germans try to say it.
[2020/06/13 14:07] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hee!
[2020/06/13 14:08] NeoBokrug Elytis: Haha
[2020/06/13 14:08] Vikki Placebo: :)
[2020/06/13 14:08] Rax Stooge: hahaha
[2020/06/13 14:08] Diamanda Gustafson: <3
[2020/06/13 14:08] Bazooka Joe (echopraxia): He got on voice and said it perfectly. I remember being so surprised that he was German and thought he was joking at first because his english was flawless. And he learned it himself, with the help of a lot of people on SL. That was always such an amazing thing for me that I wish he got more credit for. He was so insanely smart and clever.
[2020/06/13 14:08] Plurabelle Laszlo: haha
[2020/06/13 14:08] Steveke Wulluf: Yay
[2020/06/13 14:08] Raze Repine: yes
[2020/06/13 14:08] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): Aww
[2020/06/13 14:08] Giuseppe Spicoli: indeed
[2020/06/13 14:09] Aposiopesis Fullstop: So true.
[2020/06/13 14:09] xrrawva: sq
[2020/06/13 14:09] xrrawva: sqw
[2020/06/13 14:09] xrrawva: shit
[2020/06/13 14:09] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hee!
[2020/06/13 14:09] BlackWidow Sinister: :)
[2020/06/13 14:09] Vikki Placebo nods!
[2020/06/13 14:09] Bazooka Joe (echopraxia): Ben introduced me to a lot of new things. Some good, some weird, but always interesting. He was the one who first introduced me to the Wastelands. He TP’d me over and he was standing outside his barn. I was so impressed by it and all of the other things he made. I’ve never had more fun in my life than I did all of the times I got to spend with him. I was also fortunate enough to know the man behind the avatar but there was no difference. He was unashamedly himself. Always.
[2020/06/13 14:11] Bazooka Joe (echopraxia): I just want to say that I was so lucky to have the kind of relationship I did with him. He truly was my best friend. We had never met in person and I had other close friends near me but he was always the one I’d go to when I had a bad day or had some kind of news to share or just needed to talk. And I could always count on him being there. There were times when I was so shitty to him. For my own stupid reasons, no fault of his. But he was always there. And when we would have our stupid little fights he would always come back. I feel so guilty about that stuff now and I’m glad that the last few years we had together were free from all that crap. I just hope he knew how loved and appreciated he was. I think he did. He spoke so highly of so many of you here.
[2020/06/13 14:11] IKI Ä (iki.akiri): Crying now
[2020/06/13 14:12] NeoBokrug Elytis: It’s the blowing sand.
[2020/06/13 14:12] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): no worries. I had a breakdown this morning
[2020/06/13 14:12] Bazooka Joe (echopraxia): I loved him so much. I think most people who knew him felt the same way. You couldn’t not, even when he was a total pain in the ass sometimes. I think he really enjoyed being a pain in the ass and getting under people’s skin. I’ll never have another friend like him.
[2020/06/13 14:12] ɱʋʈֆƴ Ƙαɭίɠλѡɚ (mutsy.kaligawa): Aww ;_;
[2020/06/13 14:12] Bazooka Joe (echopraxia): I think that’s all I can do right now. Thank you guys for giving me a chance to get all that out.

[2020/06/13 14:15] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): So Bodo and I met many eons ago in secondlife. Honest to God, I don’t even remember how.
[2020/06/13 14:15] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): He was just always there after a while
[2020/06/13 14:15] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): a constant fixture
[2020/06/13 14:16] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): so I am not going to bore you with our SL lives
[2020/06/13 14:16] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): I am going to tell a short story from last year
[2020/06/13 14:17] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): Last year, I was pregnant with twins. Unfortunately, I had a very rare disorder crop up with put me in the hospital for months, multiple surgeries, loss of one little girl, and a 3 month stink at boston children’s hospital for the other
[2020/06/13 14:17] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): I was scared and upset
[2020/06/13 14:18] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): but you know who got on and hang out with me at night when my exhuasted husband would fall asleep?
[2020/06/13 14:18] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): Bodo AKA Ben
[2020/06/13 14:18] Aposiopesis Fullstop: :(
[2020/06/13 14:18] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): He wasn’t just a wonderfully crass guy that only lived life in SL.
[2020/06/13 14:19] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): He was a fuckin’ caring ass wonderful human being
[2020/06/13 14:19] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): and I just keep thinking about to sitting in the hospital on video chat with him
[2020/06/13 14:19] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): and how it was probably such a small thing for him to do, but so so so helpful to me
[2020/06/13 14:20] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): So Ben
[2020/06/13 14:20] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): Bodo
[2020/06/13 14:20] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): you wonderful son of a bitch
[2020/06/13 14:20] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): you better come back to haunt me so we can hang out again!

[2020/06/13 14:21] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Thank you, Aura.
[2020/06/13 14:22] Makaio Stygian: Hi everyone
[2020/06/13 14:22] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): yo mak
[2020/06/13 14:22] Raze Repine: hey mak
[2020/06/13 14:22] The Digger (sandusky.kayvon): Hi Mak!
[2020/06/13 14:22] Makaio Stygian: I must have met Ben well over a decade now, something thats been kind of blowing my mind since I heard the other day
[2020/06/13 14:22] Makaio Stygian: Ben was such a solid dude, he was an amazing conversationalist and he was some of the best company
[2020/06/13 14:23] Giuseppe Spicoli: Wow Mak
[2020/06/13 14:23] Makaio Stygian: Way back when we’d run into eachother, I was usually on SL at all hours of the night building and avoiding some other stuff I had going on
[2020/06/13 14:23] Makaio Stygian: Many times at about 6 in the morning id see a green blip barreling at me on the map and I’d wonder who was stopping by – sometimes someone I knew, sometimes some weirdo, sometimes Ben
[2020/06/13 14:24] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): that would be both categories?
[2020/06/13 14:24] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Haha!
[2020/06/13 14:24] Raze Repine: :-D
[2020/06/13 14:24] Makaio Stygian: I was always really relieved and happy to see him when he’d stop by – he never wanted anything, he never came to pick stuff apart, he never wanted to talk drama he just wanted to hang out for a few hours and talk
[2020/06/13 14:25] Makaio Stygian: He was a really positive person and he was always supportive about new projects or ideas, he liked to discuss the details – he was also capable of giving feedback that was so direct it just kind of shortcut around being negative
[2020/06/13 14:25] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Haha, accurate!
[2020/06/13 14:26] Raze Repine: true
[2020/06/13 14:26] Makaio Stygian: We’d hang out a few hours, work on stuff, and that’d be about it – he was a really intelligent, funny and creative person
[2020/06/13 14:26] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): blunt forever lol
[2020/06/13 14:27] Makaio Stygian: Im really happy to see everyone come out, Im going to miss him and his idiosyncracies a lot, im sure everyone else will too. It’s been interesting hearing all the stories about all the ways people knew him, he was such a social person, but no matter what context, everyone knows him as the same person which really speaks to his authenticity
[2020/06/13 14:27] Makaio Stygian: Thanks for letting me share
[2020/06/13 14:27] NeoBokrug Elytis: Thanks Mak!
[2020/06/13 14:27] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Thank you, Mak. <3

[2020/06/13 14:32] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): from time to time, wile i was building, ben was droping right next to me, chatting a little, pointing out little improvements, gifting me some helpfull stuf .. and bugging me to plant some weed

[2020/06/13 14:38] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): buckethead
[2020/06/13 14:38] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): take your time
[2020/06/13 14:38] Dan Buffet (danbuffet): who is?
[2020/06/13 14:39] NeoBokrug Elytis: Dan: This is a Memorial service for Benjamin Bigdipper
[2020/06/13 14:39] Dan Buffet (danbuffet): hi all
[2020/06/13 14:39] Dan Buffet (danbuffet): sorry bye
[2020/06/13 14:39] Seti Rabt (setirabit.rayna): bye dan
[2020/06/13 14:40] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): can i get a copy of the ben pictures?
[2020/06/13 14:40] Giuseppe Spicoli: Thank you Cc
[2020/06/13 14:41] NeoBokrug Elytis: I do not have correct permissions on all of them. However, everyone who is here, who has a folder of pictures of Ben, should share with the crowd if they feel inclined.
[2020/06/13 14:41] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): I would appreciate it
[2020/06/13 14:42] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Heya, Itch.
[2020/06/13 14:42] Itch (pervasiveitch): Hello
[2020/06/13 14:42] Bazooka Joe (echopraxia): Yes, I would love to have any pictures people are willing to share.
[2020/06/13 14:43] Vitani Jun: I never got to talk much to Ben one-on-one. When I met him, I was still relatively new to SL and preferred to be a bystander while I watched his friendship dynamic with other mutuals of ours. Occasionally I would even encourage the playful taunting. He knew exactly how to get under my skin with his troll remarks on Facebook, but I knew it was Ben just being Ben and that was part of his charm.
[2020/06/13 14:43] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): aw, that’s a great pic aura
[2020/06/13 14:44] Giuseppe Spicoli: (not sure the easiest way to mass share, Neo… the auto-return here is fast)
[2020/06/13 14:44] NeoBokrug Elytis: Sorry one moment, I will fix it.
[2020/06/13 14:44] NeoBokrug Elytis: 15m now
[2020/06/13 14:44] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): Ben did have that charm.
[2020/06/13 14:45] Second Life: Select residents to share with.
[2020/06/13 14:45] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): like, you could never be angry at him. not realy
[2020/06/13 14:45] Second Life: Items successfully shared.
[2020/06/13 14:45] Giuseppe Spicoli: (that wood box is for sale for $0 with a handful of my ben pics)
[2020/06/13 14:45] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): he was so honest
[2020/06/13 14:45] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): Ben always did bring a smile to my face whenever I was around him.
[2020/06/13 14:46] clσudy (black.cloud): Ben was amazing.
[2020/06/13 14:46] Vitani Jun: I’ve known him for exactly 10 years now, I believe. It’s crazy to think how you can manage to learn so much about a person without ever talking about anything other than aura’s butthole or his weed dude. The virtual room wasn’t as fun without him.
[2020/06/13 14:46] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): Thanks Apo and Giu for the pics, as well as Aura!
[2020/06/13 14:46] Bazooka Joe (echopraxia): hahaha
[2020/06/13 14:46] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): of course we brought my butthole in this
[2020/06/13 14:46] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahaha!
[2020/06/13 14:46] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): lol
[2020/06/13 14:47] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): dont’ forget my double mom vagina
[2020/06/13 14:47] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): that was a ben original
[2020/06/13 14:47] Vitani Jun: hahah of course, how could I forget
[2020/06/13 14:48] Raze Repine: :-D
[2020/06/13 14:49] Vitani Jun: In the earlier days, he introduced me to Suffugium and the Wastelands community (although I never stuck around here long enough to become part of it). I loved Suffugium so much. Unfortunately I did not know of the community’s existence until the sim closed
[2020/06/13 14:49] Giuseppe Spicoli: Suffugium!
[2020/06/13 14:50] Raze Repine: sounds like booze
[2020/06/13 14:52] Vitani Jun: While I don’t think we ever connected the way he did with other people, I genuinely enjoyed his company. His laughter and bong hits are forever ingrained in my mind. His passing was so unexpected that I regret now not getting to know him better outside our group of friends. I’m sure many of us feel similar regrets. Actions we wish we took sooner. He had bigger impact on everyone’s lives than I think many of us even realize.
[2020/06/13 14:53] clσudy (black.cloud): He really did.
[2020/06/13 14:53] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas) nods. :(
[2020/06/13 14:53] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Indeed.
[2020/06/13 14:53] Raze Repine: yes
[2020/06/13 14:53] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): Vitty, he loved you
[2020/06/13 14:53] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): i think yall were closer than you realized
[2020/06/13 14:54] Vitani Jun: The moment they legalize weed here, I will take my first hit in his honor
[2020/06/13 14:54] NeoBokrug Elytis: Hahaaa
[2020/06/13 14:54] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Haha! :D
[2020/06/13 14:54] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): Also, it is a southern tradition to get drunk as [email protected]#* for 3 days straight while celebrating someone’s passing
[2020/06/13 14:54] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): you all have my permission
[2020/06/13 14:54] Rax Stooge: I keep forgetting everyone isnt canada. I will do that tonight.
[2020/06/13 14:55] Sandling Honey: [Laughs in Dutch]
[2020/06/13 14:55] Raze Repine: can I use apple juice … it will verment in my stomagh
[2020/06/13 14:55] Vikki Placebo: :)
[2020/06/13 14:55] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): I don’t do weed, or drink but I’m willing to drink a little alcohol for him tonight.
[2020/06/13 14:55] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Haha! :D
[2020/06/13 14:55] Sandling Honey: I am drinking a Shandy as we speak, oi!
[2020/06/13 14:55] Sandling Honey: 0.03% or whatever
[2020/06/13 14:56] Raze Repine: it will verment either ;-)
[2020/06/13 14:56] Rax Stooge: I dont smoke weed either, but canada is basically made of weed now, so Im sure on my nightly walk i will inhale a good tokes worth, so I will say its for him
[2020/06/13 14:56] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): I smell enough of that stuff around here lol.
[2020/06/13 14:56] Raze Repine: :-D
[2020/06/13 14:56] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Haha!
[2020/06/13 14:56] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): i haven’t had a drink in over 2 years between pregnancy and breastfeeding
[2020/06/13 14:56] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): also good to know another fellow canadia here other than myself, :)
[2020/06/13 14:56] Plurabelle Laszlo will have some rum and continue to randomly say ‘squirrel’
[2020/06/13 14:57] Vikki Placebo: hehehe
[2020/06/13 14:57] Raze Repine: haha
[2020/06/13 14:57] Aposiopesis Fullstop hoists some Fireball.
[2020/06/13 14:57] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): he always had his RL camera set to black and white
[2020/06/13 14:57] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): like every time
[2020/06/13 14:57] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): I noticed that, yeah
[2020/06/13 14:57] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): i think i might try that for a while lol
[2020/06/13 14:58] Steveke Wulluf: B&W rocks
[2020/06/13 14:58] Vitani Jun: There was a period when he was working on a lot of self improvement and it was honestly very encouraging
[2020/06/13 14:58] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): he just liked contrasts .. all kinds of them
[2020/06/13 14:58] Vitani Jun: There’s a bunch of his photography on instagram
[2020/06/13 14:58] Rax Stooge: Tintosha: Alberta here
[2020/06/13 14:59] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): Cool, Ontario here
[2020/06/13 14:59] Rax Stooge: Noice.
[2020/06/13 14:59] NeoBokrug Elytis: (I’ll delay the movie as long as I need to, so everyone can have some time to speak.)
[2020/06/13 15:00] Raze Repine: gosh … was i really shaved on my wedding … gosh
[2020/06/13 15:00] Raze Repine: ?
[2020/06/13 15:00] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hee!
[2020/06/13 15:00] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): so technical we can still avoid the movie
[2020/06/13 15:00] clσudy (black.cloud): XD
[2020/06/13 15:00] Vitani Jun: I’m pretty much done. Did anyone else want to say something?
[2020/06/13 15:00] Vikki Placebo: lol
[2020/06/13 15:00] NeoBokrug Elytis: Haha yeah.
[2020/06/13 15:00] Rax Stooge: 2 more weeks i guess?
[2020/06/13 15:00] Raze Repine: O_o
[2020/06/13 15:00] NeoBokrug Elytis: Thank you Vitani :)
[2020/06/13 15:00] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): Thanks Vit! That was really awesome to hear your side.
[2020/06/13 15:00] NeoBokrug Elytis: Vikki, you’re up next.
[2020/06/13 15:01] Vikki Placebo: thanks Vitani! <3
[2020/06/13 15:01] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Thank you, Vitani!
[2020/06/13 15:01] Lune (lunesta.matova): Thank you
[2020/06/13 15:01] The Digger (sandusky.kayvon): Thank you Vitani
[2020/06/13 15:01] Sandling Honey: Thank you!
[2020/06/13 15:01] Giuseppe Spicoli: Thank you Vit
[2020/06/13 15:01] Raze Repine: thank you so much Vit
[2020/06/13 15:01] Ztar (ztar.magic): thanks Vitani

[2020/06/13 15:01] Vikki Placebo: OK, i shall ramble a bit…!
[2020/06/13 15:02] Vikki Placebo: I don’t have anything surprising to say about Ben, but firstly — it is nice to see all of you, especially in these fuckedup times. Sad as the occasion may be, I think Ben would be very happy that so many people are all together.
[2020/06/13 15:02] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): dont worry tho. i could provide the 30second version of human centipede .. with bunnies. just for all our mental health
[2020/06/13 15:02] Vikki Placebo: lol
[2020/06/13 15:02] Seti Rabt (setirabit.rayna): I am sorry everyone but I must be going now.
[2020/06/13 15:03] Seti Rabt (setirabit.rayna): I never knew Ben but from what I can tell he was a really great guy. Mad respect to him and my condolences to you all.
[2020/06/13 15:03] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): thanks for comming
[2020/06/13 15:03] Vikki Placebo: take care, Seti! :)
[2020/06/13 15:03] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Take care, Seti.
[2020/06/13 15:03] Giuseppe Spicoli: Thank you Seti
[2020/06/13 15:03] Raze Repine: cya
[2020/06/13 15:03] Vikki Placebo: I didn’t realize how much time I had spent with Ben until I looked back and thought about it. It may have only been a few years that we really hung out, but I did end up spending a lot of time with him, and, as others have said, he was on voice a lot, and was totally himself all of the time. So, getting to know Ben was a quick process. And for so many of us, it seems, Ben became a very integral part of SL.
[2020/06/13 15:04] Vikki Placebo: I don’t actually have any particular stories; you all know that most every fucking day with Ben was a new and unbelievable story…
[2020/06/13 15:04] Aposiopesis Fullstop: :D
[2020/06/13 15:05] Vikki Placebo: Ben was good and true friend, and to a whole lot of people, it seems. He spent a lot of time helping me to learn SL and helping me to learn Blender. I wouldn’t be able to do 3D shit if not for Ben. And I sometimes hear his voice when I’m in Blender. But, as others have said, most of the time, Ben just wanted to hang out and shoot the shit and be pals. I am forever indebted to him, for his help and for his friendship and for all the fun times.
[2020/06/13 15:05] Vikki Placebo: Ben, you were truly a Magnificent Bastard.
[2020/06/13 15:05] Raze Repine: <3
[2020/06/13 15:05] Rax Stooge: hear hear!
[2020/06/13 15:05] Aposiopesis Fullstop: And how.
[2020/06/13 15:05] clσudy (black.cloud): ❤
[2020/06/13 15:06] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): he was
[2020/06/13 15:06] Lune (lunesta.matova): Aww, thanks, Vikki
[2020/06/13 15:06] NeoBokrug Elytis: Thanks Vikki!
[2020/06/13 15:06] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Thank you, Vikki! <3
[2020/06/13 15:06] Steveke Wulluf: <3
[2020/06/13 15:06] Rax Stooge: THanks Vikki!
[2020/06/13 15:06] Raze Repine: thx a lot
[2020/06/13 15:06] NeoBokrug Elytis: Apo is up next
[2020/06/13 15:06] Anne Cloud: Thanks Vikki!
[2020/06/13 15:06] The Digger (sandusky.kayvon): Thanks Vikki
[2020/06/13 15:06] Ztar (ztar.magic): ♥thanks Vikki
[2020/06/13 15:06] Makaio Stygian: Thanks Vikki
[2020/06/13 15:06] Sandling Honey: Thank you :)
[2020/06/13 15:06] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): Thank you Vikki!
[2020/06/13 15:06] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): That was super sweet.
[2020/06/13 15:06] Vikki Placebo: :)

[2020/06/13 15:08] Aposiopesis Fullstop: I spent a while trying to process all of this, and… my processing usually happens in the form of long rambling rants, so.
[2020/06/13 15:08] Giuseppe Spicoli sits back
[2020/06/13 15:08] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Ben was… very hard to sum up. It could almost be easy to dismiss him at a glance, whether his avatar was clad in a blood-spattered outfit suitable for a horror movie, a fluffy pink bathrobe, overalls and a greasy mullet, or just in a single strategic sock….
[2020/06/13 15:09] Aposiopesis Fullstop: He always had a fascination with the morbid, with shock and horror and smut. He was amused by the many layers of taboo we wrap around the raw flesh of human existence – and by peeling those layers back to see what squirmed beneath.
[2020/06/13 15:09] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): anyone else had to sit with him and help him decide if the flesh color was matching his skin….
[2020/06/13 15:09] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): ahaha
[2020/06/13 15:10] Raze Repine: :-)
[2020/06/13 15:10] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): i think i was on bloodstain duty once or twice
[2020/06/13 15:10] Vikki Placebo: lol
[2020/06/13 15:10] Aposiopesis Fullstop: So, yeah, like others here, I can imagine his ghost laughing at us a bit for gathering here in any ceremonial sort of way. And I can imagine it poking at his own corpse with giddy curiosity before laughing at me for imagining him as a ghost at all, then vanishing in a puff of improbability and neutrinos.
[2020/06/13 15:11] Rax Stooge: hehhehh
[2020/06/13 15:11] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Because, whether it was on religion or politics or sexuality or death itself, there were few things Ben seemed to dislike more than an unexamined opinion.
[2020/06/13 15:11] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): you know he was amazed with whatever death boner he had
[2020/06/13 15:11] Vikki Placebo: lol
[2020/06/13 15:11] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahahaha
[2020/06/13 15:12] Aposiopesis Fullstop: He was as intelligent as he was vulgar, as thoughtful as he was a sleaze. He wasn’t a knee-jerk rebel or naysayer, though he would play Devil’s advocate well enough to beat the beast himself.
[2020/06/13 15:12] Raze Repine: yeah
[2020/06/13 15:13] Aposiopesis Fullstop: And so he could be challenging at times – even obnoxious. Ultimately, he had high expectations of those around him. Not necessarily that they’d agree with him, but that they’d have thought enough to really understand themselves and what they believed, and that they’d explain it.
[2020/06/13 15:13] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Or at least that they’d write it out clearly. After all, he taught himself English with such fluency that I knew some people were surprised he knew German, as well – and he didn’t have much regard for anyone who wouldn’t bother to take their own thoughts seriously enough to express them well.
[2020/06/13 15:14] Alabama Thunderpuss (aura.falta): so sorry, but i am going have to pop off. It was so nice hearing everyone’s thoughts. Pour one at for the masked man tonight!
[2020/06/13 15:14] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Ben would not abide a fool, but would extend extreme patience toward any sincere learner. He extended that patience to me when he tried to teach me Blender. (It never quite took, but he tried.)
[2020/06/13 15:14] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): thanks for being here
[2020/06/13 15:14] Aposiopesis Fullstop: (Take care, Aura! Thank you for being here and sharing with us.)
[2020/06/13 15:15] Grady Echegaray: Hey Aura :)
[2020/06/13 15:15] Raze Repine: cya
[2020/06/13 15:15] Vikki Placebo: take care, Aura! thanks for being here <3
[2020/06/13 15:15] Aposiopesis Fullstop: And he was a lifelong learner, himself. He studied philosophy and photography, and he used both to find and share interesting perspectives.
[2020/06/13 15:16] Aposiopesis Fullstop: When he wasn’t re-examining reality and culture, he was making some of his own: I remember him being in the vanguard of 3D modelers, once sculpties were a thing in Second Life, and he made anything from butcher’s hooks and bloody hockey masks to black-capped chickadees that hopped and pecked the sand.
[2020/06/13 15:16] Aposiopesis Fullstop: One of the most recent updates I knew from his real life was that he’d become a technical product designer, using CAD to model things that would become… well, *things.* And that seemed so fitting, and so cool.
[2020/06/13 15:17] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Ben would entertain uncomfortable truths, uncomfortable fictions, discomfort itself. And for all that he tried to analyze taboo and discomfort, to investigate the edges and boundaries with calipers and rulers, to shake the World-Tree itself until it explained itself… often, it was just that culture is what it is.
[2020/06/13 15:18] Aposiopesis Fullstop: That some things happen that cannot be comfortably embraced or padded over or protected against. We tell ourselves stories, and some of them are useful, but most of them are lies, and there’s a utility in sitting with our discomfort.
[2020/06/13 15:18] Itch (pervasiveitch): I must go, stay safe everyone <3
[2020/06/13 15:18] Grady Echegaray: ninis Itch
[2020/06/13 15:18] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): thanks for comming
[2020/06/13 15:18] Rax Stooge: Later itch
[2020/06/13 15:18] Aposiopesis Fullstop: (Take care, Itch.)
[2020/06/13 15:19] Vikki Placebo: take care, Itch!
[2020/06/13 15:19] BlackWidow Sinister: I must go for a bit.. Back in 1/2 hour
[2020/06/13 15:19] Raze Repine: cya then
[2020/06/13 15:19] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): cya later
[2020/06/13 15:21] Aposiopesis Fullstop: He could at times be “too” serious; he could at times be “too” absurd. He was sincere in his sarcasm and sarcastic in his sincerity. But it was always well-meaning. It wasn’t to grind our nose into the awful bits of existence, but to say “Look at this! Look at all these things people do! Don’t just shut it out, don’t just be afraid. It’s part of the way things are!”
[2020/06/13 15:22] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Even if it was gross, loud, obscene, gory, filthy, or unsettlingly moist.
[2020/06/13 15:23] Aposiopesis Fullstop: He was a lot of things, in a lot of ways. But as has been said before… he was Benjamin Bigdipper. He was always – thoroughly – himself.
[2020/06/13 15:23] Aposiopesis Fullstop: And now he’s not.
[2020/06/13 15:23] Aposiopesis Fullstop: It’s the most uncomfortable thing of all.
[2020/06/13 15:24] Bazooka Joe (echopraxia): :(
[2020/06/13 15:24] Aposiopesis Fullstop: But I’ll remember him fondly. And warmly. He brought so much to this place, and to us. And those memories, and the things he created, will live on as we ourselves live and share.
[2020/06/13 15:24] Raze Repine: :-(
[2020/06/13 15:25] Raze Repine: thumbs up
[2020/06/13 15:25] Giuseppe Spicoli: So say we all
[2020/06/13 15:25] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): ❤
[2020/06/13 15:25] clσudy (black.cloud): T.T
[2020/06/13 15:25] Plurabelle Laszlo nods
[2020/06/13 15:25] Rax Stooge nods
[2020/06/13 15:25] The Mutant Witch of the Wastes (ccindy.pfeffer): the more of these stories i hear. the more i realize how well i knew him. and how much i did not know about him. if that makes any sence
[2020/06/13 15:25] Vikki Placebo nods
[2020/06/13 15:25] Tintosha (tayasha.tammas): I get you, cc
[2020/06/13 15:25] Plurabelle Laszlo: it does, cc
[2020/06/13 15:26] Aposiopesis Fullstop: It does! I think that’s one of the virtues of SL. We get to know people for their personalities, what they’re like.
[2020/06/13 15:26] Rax Stooge: yeh
[2020/06/13 15:26] Plurabelle Laszlo: yes
[2020/06/13 15:26] clσudy (black.cloud): Unfiltered

[2020/06/13 15:27] Aposiopesis Fullstop: So, this isn’t the first time we’ve gathered like this to send off one of our own. And we’ve got a bit of a ritual, if you’d like to take part. A sort of 21-gun salute.
[2020/06/13 15:27] Sandling Honey: And the more I realized my misfortune of never actually having been able to spend time with him in SL – Most of Ben’s ‘actions’ of sorts were inevitably relayed to me, but I had never really been able to listen, or see his antics for myself. I had never expected I would never have that chance anymore either..
[2020/06/13 15:27] Aposiopesis Fullstop: The stuff of legend. ;)
[2020/06/13 15:28] Sandling Honey: I do think I was once called over wayback to investigate a possible griefer – which ended up being quite the false alarm
[2020/06/13 15:28] Vikki Placebo: :)
[2020/06/13 15:29] Sandling Honey: But that’s about the extend of it
[2020/06/13 15:29] Sandling Honey: Not everyone respects the sock
[2020/06/13 15:29] Rax Stooge: Haha
[2020/06/13 15:29] Aposiopesis Fullstop: Hahaha!
[2020/06/13 15:29] clσudy (black.cloud): ;D
[2020/06/13 15:29] Raze Repine: hahaha
[2020/06/13 15:29] Grady Echegaray: lols
[2020/06/13 15:29] Raze Repine: brb … need a coffee
